Ha ha ha, yeah... back when I painted my first models in a starter kit that was... Battle for Macragge (plus a carnifex) I went a bit wild on the carnifex not really knowing what I wanted, slowly the more I painted, colours found their little areas and tidied up a bit. If you think this is intense you should have seen that first carnifex, I also put like every optional extra on him, that was 5th ed I think? when the bio morphs improved stats I think. It was like if all the gadgets in james bond's car suddenly went off at once... and it was a 80's, neon, destruction insect the size of a house... ok, so not like james bonds car, but I stand by my analogy!
I like to think of the colour scheme like those really poisonous things like tree frogs or some like... birds of paradise? Tyranids don't need to hide, so their colour isn't relevant to function... apart from from the lictor, who can just change colour! I really like them even if I did have doubts. I have had a couple of comments at warhammer world from strangers. One guy examine all my models carefully for a couple of minutes and just said... "interesting". I was a amused by it and I love interesting stuff, but I'm pretty sure that's not what you want to hear people saying! My favourite was when this couple walked past and the girl started having a fit, pointing at my models and shouting at her boyfriend "Why don't MINE look like that!". That was cool
I think your the first person in forum to say you like the colours so thanks Redtoof
